A leopard was recently spotted walking alongside excited tourists and drivers of local tourist vehicles in the middle of a road in Tirthan Valley in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu district.
From excited tourists peering out of stranded tourist vehicles and busy recording videos on their mobile cameras, the purportedly lost and confused leopard grabbed the attention of people of all ages in broad daylight.
The poor creature kept circling the vehicles even as some people tried to pet it or touch it.
Netizens guessed that recent snowfall in the upper climes of Himachal Pradesh had forced the big cat to approach human habitations in search of food.
The leopard did not harm any human. Netizens blamed the insensitive people for unnecessarily bothering the animal with their unwanted attention and following it as it tried to find a way out of the busy road.
